The Duo -
Hi we are Andrea and John Ciardelli, owners of Typsy Gypsy based in Columbus, Ohio. We met in the restaurant business in 2005 and became a forever team in 2007. We have a love for entertaining and bringing people together. A lot of our vision and dreams come from our favorite part of a gathering- the sobra mesa. Sobra mesa is a Cuban tradition (John being Cuban-Italian) that involves spending time relaxing and having good conversation after a meal to sip coffee or a cocktail or to just continue hanging out chatting at the table after eating. We have a real passion for family, friends, food and drink and the memories that come from everyone being together. We have over 30 years of experience in the hospitality industry including managing, serving, bartending, wine sales, and owning a food truck. From cocktails to full catering; we truly do it all!
When Vision Becomes Reality-
We started brainstorming and looking for vintage horse trailer in the summer of 2020 and fell in love with the first one we saw. It was love at first sight when we found "Typsy". Right away, we knew she was destined for great things. From the aesthetics of the interior to cocktail design we have been busy dreaming and planning. Let me tell you how fun cocktail development is- I mean someone has to drink all the different versions of each cocktail, right?!?
